Biography

Alexander McLeish was born in Glasgow on 21 January, 1959.
The tall central defender was a key player in the dominant Aberdeen side of the early 1980s, which won numerous trophies under Alex Ferguson. His distinctive red hair was first seen in the Aberdeen side in January 1978, two years after signing for the Dons from Glasgow United. The run of trophies started with the Scottish League championship in 1979/80, and Aberdeen also won the championship twice more in 1983/84 and 1984/85. T
